Amsterdam Photo Diary - Day 1

I got back from my trip to Amsterdam last Wednesday and I have finally had time to write up a blog post on my trip. I had such a lovely time and I wish we could have stayed longer, these are just my photos from Day 1 because there are so many so I'm going to split up each day into separate posts. We only got to Amsterdam around 5 o'clock so we went straight to our hotel to drop off our bags and then went out for something to eat.

We then went for a walk around the center and took lots of photos of the pretty canals and flower boxes. I saw lots of really cool bikes including this milka chocolate one which I loved! We popped in too a newsagent to buy some water and milka chocolate and I saw 'Cannabis pops' for sale, it seems strange seeing them because Cannabis obviously isn't legal here but it is in Amsterdam, I'm not sure if these were real or a jokey thing though. At about 10-11 o'clock we went to a cute little pub on the corner just down from our hotel ,there pubs are different than ours,  they are quite small and cosy and in the evening they serve coffee and hot chocolate and have candles lit outside. We got hot chocolates and my parents got coffee's and as soon as we sat down this resident little white cat climbed straight onto my knee for a nap! Unfortunately I was wearing black leggings but never mind eyy! She was such a cute little cat and I wanted to keep her or smuggle her up to our hotel room.

And that was the end of day one, we were all really tired so we just went back to our hotel room after that. I will post about day 2 and 3 in the next few days hopefully! I also need to do a ' Car boot finds' post from this weekend but I'm worried people find them a bit repetitive so let me know if you would or wouldn't like to see one. Sorry I haven't had much time to post recently, I am doing my work experience at place that does card designs at the moment and I am there from 9-5:30 so I don't have much free time, but I will be back soon!


  1. Those cannabis pops are sold all over the Netherlands, but they just have the taste so you won't get high from them or anything!

    Amsterdam is really nice, so happy for you that you got to go there!

    1. Oh right haha, I wasn't sure if they were real or not :') Thankyou xx
